HEATHER GOODWIN is a California native currently working as a Creative Designer for film and television. For 10 years, she has instructed children and adults in Yoga, Mountaineering and Art.

WANNA CAMCAM is a visual artist from the Philippines. In 2004 she designed, produced and distributed resource kits for the homeless staying in Los Angeles shelters.

MICHELE LOTT, a native Californian who's worked in film advertising, illustration & graphic design for the past 17 years, volunteered this last year with Common Ground (multi-resource program for the HIV+ homeless), and Big Brothers/Big Sisters art mentoring program.
